British Blind Sport are excited to have their See My Voice project chosen to be involved in a new programme led by Spring Impact and Sport England. The Scaling Programme looks to assist five projects, all of whom work to engage a diverse range of people to volunteer in sport and physical activity, to scale up their operations and reach more people across England.
See My Voice is a sports leadership programme for 10 to 20 year olds. The See My Voice project supports Young Leaders to develop life skills that will inevitably increase their confidence and enhance their employment prospects as well as providing an opportunity to meet new friends and improve lives. See My Voice offers young people a leadership qualification and supports them to develop a range of skills and to undertake volunteering roles.
Spring Impact, a global non-profit which enables organisations to scale social impact through consultancy and developing and sharing insight, is running the scaling programme over three years, in partnership with Sport England.
British Blind Sport’s Young Leaders Officer, Tommy Garwood, said “We’re thrilled that See My Voice has been chosen for the scaling programme. It’s a brilliant project that has already helped so many young people with a visual impairment to gain leadership skills, experience fantastic volunteering opportunities and meet new people from across the country. That we now have the chance to take See My Voice to the next level and expand its reach is really exciting!”
